PLANNING APPLICATION

DESIGN STATEMENT.

The application is for the extension and alterations to this fine detached dwelling house in Broughty Ferry, Dundee.

The house is within the Conservation Area but is not a Listed Building. It was designed and built in around 1897. The main part of the house is traditional in style with Limestone render detailing to the principal elevations.

To the rear there is an extension of poor architectural quality and physical condition. There are existing windows to the west that share a boundary with communal garden ground to the adjacent tenements.

The proposal seeks full Planning Approval to remove the existing extension to the north and to replace with a new extension that will comply with current technical standards and provide modern comfortable family accommodation that is less comprised than the existing arrangement.

The external appearance, the scale, the detail and the finish is intended to accurately reflect the existing architecture. It is not intended to appear as an intervention, but rather respectfully compliment the vernacular, and to feel – in time – as though it were part of the original design.
